    Healing Through Honesty

    Healing Through Honesty

    In this raw and powerful episode, guest, Shaun Coffee, shares his harrowing journey from a childhood marked by abuse to a life dedicated to healing and advocacy.
    Growing up, Shaun faced unimaginable challenges. His abuser silenced his emotions, leaving him unable to express pain or vulnerability. But Shaun’s resilience led him on a path of self-discovery and transformation.
    From battling substance abuse and chronic homelessness to navigating relationship traumas, Shaun’s story is one of survival and redemption. He candidly discusses the demons he confronted, both external and internal.
    Shaun’s turning point came when he realized that forgiveness wasn’t just about absolving others—it was about forgiving himself. His journey toward self-acceptance and self-love became a beacon of hope for others who felt lost in their struggles.
    As a passionate advocate, Shaun now speaks at high schools and colleges, sharing his message: In his book " Boys Do Cry.” He emphasizes the importance of community, urging everyone to confront their own truths. Because, as Shaun knows firsthand, if you lie to yourself, you’ll eventually lie to everyone around you.
    Join us for an emotional and inspiring conversation as Shaun Coffee opens up about vulnerability, resilience, and the power of authenticity.
